Warming Up

This winter has been absolutely terrible. I do not remember it ever being this cold. There was even a day when they closed all the elementary schools because it was too darn cold to go outside.

Even though we live right across the street from the school, we are always frozen to the bone when we get home after classes. You know that kind of cold that just will not go away without a steaming cup of hot chocolate. And with as cold as it has been, many cups of hot chocolate have been sipped this winter at my house.

Using this latest sketch from The Memory Nest
I created this layout using pictures from one of out hot chocolate breaks:
This was really my kind of sketch, suited me to a tee - very straight and grid like, very clean lines - I loved working with it.
I did use fewer photos than the sketch did, but filled in the other spaces with blocks of patterned paper. This was a great way to use a lot of different patterned papers on my layout. The paper I used for this layout is Winter Wishes by Echo Park.

As always, it is so interesting to see how the other members of the Design Team interpreted this sketch so be sure to visit The Memory Nest today to see their work.

And if you are still in the grip of winter like we are, may I suggest a steaming mug of hot chocolate.
